Marian Hossa Injury: Blackhawks Winger Continues To Make Progress

During a conference call Tuesday, Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman discussed Marian Hossa's rehab and echoed the sentiments he expressed last month: namely that Hossa is progressing well and should be ready for the start of camp in September.

"[Marian Hossa and Steve Montador] are on the mend and starting their summer training programs, getting ready for the season," Bowman said. "It’s still June, and camp isn’t until September, so it’s not anything you can guarantee on how they progress. But at this point, we’re very optimistic the way both are feeling. I suppose that can change, but most likely it’s full steam ahead as they ramp up over the summer."

Hossa suffered a concussion during the playoffs when Raffi Torres of the Coyotes hit him with a cheap shot.
